i truly think there is no need for the "sadness" with regards to Monaco's future it is still quite vibrant and alive as it has always been. Surely, Princess Grace and Ranier will always be missed however, this is an interim time for Caroline, steph and PA where it is simply a period of "adjustment". Much like in every situation, this family's needs for "breathing space" for adjustment is necessary for Monaco.. there has been alot of housecleaning to be done and "whatever" else is necessary to happen as Monaco poises itself for it's future which is indeed bright as it has always been. Once that adjustment time period come--people will have to "look out" for Monaco glitter will be brighter than ever. Change is never easy as we all know; but always well worth the trouble imho. It's always important that as Monaco moves towards the futre and all the things this millenium holds that it's past moves directly beside it never allowing the future to obscure the past and never allowing the past to hold back it's future it's the only way true progress can ever exist in any society. So the need for handwringing is simply not there--take a deeeep breath and understand that if his dad had no trouble believing to his son's capability--and there is no doubt that Ranier didn't have any trouble believing in his son and family's capability--no one else should either. it doesn't mean to live blindly it simply means to never loose objectivity.

his advisors as well are equally as capable they have made it this far.

Strange though, during the Grace Kelly period of time, the aristocrats were complaining about Monaco not being the place it used to be before her arrival.

She brought many Hollywood stars over there, and horror of horrors, flocks of American tourists and "nouveaux riches" into the tiny principality.

After Grace's death it was the turn of the supermodels such as Claudia Shiffer, Linda Evangelista and Valeria Mazza that, according to certain press had spoiled the Rose and the Red Cross Ball prestige.

Now it is the turn of the nouveaux riches from Eastern Europe, and we all regret the good old days when Grace reigned.

I wouldn't be surprised if one day I might read about the good old days when Roman Abramovitch or Zepter shed lustre on Monaco's events (BTW I choose those names at random)
